We have already told you on several occasions about the ability of our Xiaomi phones to wirelessly share the Internet with other devices or computers can keep us connected at all times, no matter where we are but it’s possible that a computer you’re trying to connect from doesn’t have a network card or isn’t able to properly connect to a particular network over WiFi.
For this reason, Xiaomi offers us, among the MIUI 13 settings, a functionality that will save our lives in such cases, a tool that allows us to use our smartphone like a regular USB router that is also extremely easy to configure, as we will show you below.
How to share the internet with your Xiaomi phone via USB
As mentioned, your mobile’s 3G, 4G or 5G connectivity can be used via the USB socket, allowing your computer to get a connection without needing a network card. Something that can save us in certain cases when we cannot physically connect to a traditional WiFi network.
In addition, the configuration is very simple We don’t even have to set up a mobile hotspot like we do with wireless connections and we just have to connect our phone to our PC via USB and follow the steps below:
- Once your phone is connected to your computer via USB, open Settings and access the Portable Hotspot section.
- Now just go down and check the “Share Internet via USB” option.
In this way, we can have internet for our wifi devices everywhere. Whether on the beach, in the mountains, etc also abroad via the roaming connection provided to us by our operator. A really useful tool, especially now that operators keep adding gigabytes of data to our plans.
